Had a great meal and enjoyed a beautiful view of the sunset with our friends. We had lobster bake, which was quite tasty. The only drawback was that the tables and seats were not comfortable. Service was good but not great.

Came here for dinner using a Groupon and it was worth it. The lobster, clams, and mussels and dessert was very good. View was excellent. Service was okay.

Mediocre rooftop club. The security guards checking if you fit into their dress code are completely rude and full of attitude. So much hassle and too little professionalism.
